Where will the goals be happening this weekend in the Premier League? There are some fixtures which look as if they will return a few goals, such as Chelsea’s home match against Crystal Palace and Manchester City’s hosting of Watford at the Etihad.

The Tottenham and Everton clash at White Hart Lane has scoring potential as well, which Norwich may be able to heap some more misery on Southampton as they visit St Mary’s, three of the last four clashes there between them flying over the 2.5 goals mark. It’s an interesting line-up of fixtures and if you were considering an over/under 2.5 goals acca the head to Stan James for it.

Place a £5 accumulator (4+ selections) on this weekend’s Premier League Under/Over 2.5 Goals market and Stan James will give you a £5 Free Bet – whether you win or lose.

For example A £5 acca on over 2.5 goals in the following games returns £83 and a £5 free bet: Newcastle v Arsenal, Bournemouth v Leicester, Man City v Watford, Tottenham v Everton and Stoke v WBA.

So there is a potential big payout on this Bet £5, get a £5 free bet offer from Stan James! This applies to qualifying bets of an accumulator (minimum of four selections) of £5 (cash) placed before 15.00 Saturday 29th August 2015 (BST) on the Under/Over 2.5 Goals market.

W3 L1 – that is the record that West Brom have put up in their last four home matches against Chelsea in the Premier League. The Blues went to the Hawthorns last season and were pounded 3-0 thanks largely in part to an inspired performance by Saido Berahino for the Baggies, who netted a brace in the game. That result remains the joint-heaviest defeat for Chelsea in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho.

Now with just a point on the board so far this season from their opening two games, and with their defence having been breached five times already, Chelsea head back to the Hawthorns on Sunday with some pressure mounting on them. No-one had more Premier League away wins than Chelsea did last season and now with such big questions being asked of them in their title defence, will they be able to kick start their season into gear?

The Baggies have yet to score this season and they were torn apart at the Hawthorns by Manchester in their opening match of the new season. So the Blues go as 8/13 favourites to put the three points in the bag, while West Brom are 11/2 to take a win and the draw is at 3/1.

However if you go and shop around at Stan James and find yourself a 2/1 or bigger winner on any market, then Stan James will match your stake with a free bet bonus (up to the maximum of £25).

Given the Baggies’ good home record against the Blues they at they have going, the long price on West Brom to win would be huge so that could be a way to go. Or perhaps Diego Costa to score first in the match would fall into the promotion while Chelsea to win to nil would also qualify for the free matched bet!

So your winning just got even better with Stan James. Get a 100% matched free bet of up to £25 if you place a winning single pre-event bet at 2/1 (3.00) or greater on Sunday’s (23/08/2015) Premier League match between West Brom v Chelsea (pre-match single bets only).

There will probably be some drama from the Etihad on Sunday afternoon as Manchester City take on Chelsea in the weekend’s big match. After Chelsea stuttered to a 2-2 home draw against Swansea on the opening day of the season while City banked an impressive 3-0 away win at West Brom, Sunday’s fixture at the Etihad sees a bit of pressure on Chelsea.

The Blues won’t want to lose this one and fall five points behind the Citizens even though it is so early in the season. City won’t want to lose and find themselves a point behind the Blues. So interesting stuff and a draw may not be too far from the picture given the 1-1 draws that the two sides played out last season. Chelsea will probably go and play defensively and hope for counter attacks, as is their style in big games like this under Jose Mourinho.

Stan James are offering money back as a free bet to the value of £25 on all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer and Correct Score bets if Sergio Aguero or Diego Costa scores first in the match. Aguero has netted nine Premier League goals in his last eight appearances. Impressive stuff.

Stan James also run accumulator insurance on all 5+ acca’s containing at least one Premier League selection. If just one leg of such a wager lets you down then you will be returned a free £25 bet as a consolation. Open a new account with Stan James and you can earn yourself a free £10 bet as well!

That would be some feat from the young American, but even the spotlights aren’t all him because of the return to action of Rory McIlroy. The defending US PGA Championship champion has recovered from his ankle problem and is trading as 10/1 second favourite.

Bubba Watson and Jason Day have received plenty of support this week with Stan James in the build up are are 10/1 and 12/1 respectively in the outright winner market. Dustin Johnson, who so nearly landed the US Open this season is holding at 16/1 and the only other player under twenties is England’s Justin Rose at 18/1.

One of Europe’s biggest operators Unibet have taken a major step towards expansion in the UK after they announced a deal last week to purchase the digital business of Stan James for £19m. The completion of the purchase is expected to happen in the second Q3 2015 with the total cash being paid in full.

Not included in the deal are the 90 stores that Stan James has across the UK, it is only for the digital arm of the business. Based in Gibraltar, all Stan James employees there will simply switch over to Unibet when the deal is approved.

It was reported last September that Stan James were in discussions with a potential purchasers, and Unibet have made no secret that they wanted an acquisition to land a heavier presence in the UK.

CEO Henrik Tjärnström said he was confident the acquisition would add significant value to the Group and help the company strengthen its position in the UK sports betting market.

“Stan James as an operator is one of the most well-respected in the UK market with particular strengths in horse-racing and other British sports,” he said.

“Over time we see a significant potential to increase the breadth of the Stan James product range, such as live streaming, casino and improving the mobile offering,” Tjärnström added.

Stan James figures show that they took £10.5m in gross winnings revenue for the five months ended 31 May 2015.

“There is a substantial market opportunity in the UK following the re-regulation,” Denis Kelly, CEO of Stan James Online, said.

“Through the combination of Unibet expertise in marketing and financial strength, together with Stan James’ high quality sports and racing betting offering aimed at the UK, I am confident that we can increase substantially the combined Group’s market share in the UK,” he added.

A fantastic deal to be snapped up for your St Jude Classic betting.

Dustin Johnson is running as 11/2 heavy favourite to land a win on the PGA Tour this week. He won the St Jude back in 2012 and has been ticking along in decent steady form this season, having won once in 2015 at the WGC Cadillac. He is the only man in single figures for this week’s FedEx St Jude Classic golf betting, with the nearest challenger being Phil Mickelson all the way back at 16/1.

So there is some big value around this week, with Webb Simpson and Billy Horschel tracking behind the quote of 18/1 while Ryan Palmer sits at 20/1, and everyone else 22/1 bar. You are going to be better off again looking at the top ten finish market where is there is more realistic value on offer for your golf betting. 2013 winner Harris English is running at 22/1 to get back on top twelve months later.

The Stan James offer above does lend some great value to Thursday, as you can just watch some of the first round and see who gets off to a solid start and then play an each way wager live in-play.

It is off to The Players this week for your PGA Tour golf betting and it is Rory McIlroy who heading up the field. He responded to all the Jordan Spieth hype by becoming just the second player ever to win the WGC Cadillac Match Play going as number one seed.

So McIlroy looks back in the groove heading to the Players at 7/1 favourite with online betting site Stan James. McIlroy has landed top ten finishes in his last two outings at the Players as well, and with a solid T4 at the Masters and then his Match Play win, he looks the man to beat again.

But the bookmakers haven’t ignored Masters champion Jordan Spieth of course, who is 8/1 with Stan James for the TPC Sawgrass challenge this week. He was tied for fourth here last year in what was his debut at the event. Didn’t perform at the WGC Match Play, but then again, it simply means that he will have had more rest and prep time to get back to business this week. Behind those two short priced options, you are looking around the 18/1 mark for Henrik Stenson who is in a nice bit of form. He has carded three top five finish in his last four tournaments and was a winner at TPC Sawgrass in 2009.

Decent looking value on Stenson for sure, who is even 4/1 for a top five finish this week. Justin Rose is just coming in under 20’s for The Players golf betting this week and like Stenson is carrying some solid form, and was a winner on the Tour a couple of weeks ago, which followed his second place finish at the Masters. He has his eye in at the moment and put in a best ever Players finish of a T4 last season. Could go close and has appeal at 2/1 in the top ten finish market.

With the power duo of Spieth and McIlroy knocking around at the head of the market then you are going to be best served by taking a look at the Top 5 and Top 10 finish markets at Stan James, where there is sensible value in the likes of Jim Furyk, Jason Day and Matt Kuchar.

Online betting site Stan James has a huge free bet promotion running for THE PLAYERS golf betting. Place a £20 outright, to a £10 each way wager on the outright winner market in-play on Thursday, and Stan James will give you a free £5 bet to use on Friday’s action!

Stan James are also offering insurance for your golf betting acca! Simply place a 2/3 ball accumulator on 4 or more selections, and if you miss by one they will refund your stake as a free bet.

Aston Villa v Arsenal Betting Preview

Can the Villains keep their fantastic start to the season going? Punters may be eying up the chance of them doing so on Saturday, as Arsenal have had a long week. However, it is the Gunners with all of the form in the head to head and they go as favourites at Stan James

There is a great free £5 bet available at online betting site Stan James this week. Place a minimum £5 treble on the under over 2.5 goals market on any Premier League games this weekend and the bookie will credit you with a free bet, regardless of whether your original bet wins or loses.

Aston Villa v Arsenal Betting Tips

All credit due to Aston Villa and boss Paul Lambert. They produced hard work and organisation in spades last weekend when they took a shock 1-0 win at Anfield over Liverpool. The impressive thing was, they really didn’t give Liverpool much of a sniff of goal. With just one goal conceded all season, can the Villains now keep Arsenal at bay? It’s a tough sequence of games for Villa, but they certainly have confidence on their side and that could count for a lot.

Remarkably Villa have picked up 10 points this season from just six shots on target this term. That is a league low amount of shots. It goes to show the strength of their defensive organisation at the moment. Can they keep it going? Will punters be tempted to back Villa to win to nil in this one? Last season they lost ten of their 19 home games, but with a draw against Newcastle and a win over Hull at Villa Park, they have started off on the positive foot. Of course, this is a step up in quality of opposition though.

Arsenal haven’t kept a clean sheet this season in the Premier League, and after conceding a late equaliser against Man City last weekend, followed by a poor defeat at Borussia Dortmund in midweek, then the Gunners are a side still looking to hit their stride. They haven’t been at their best this season at all, not quite clicking. Danny Welbeck will be the focus of attention, and while he was wasteful against Dortmund, he has scored three goals in his last two Premier League matches against Aston Villa, so could be value to strike in the anytime goalscorer market.

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 15 Premier League trips to Villa Park and the Gunners have won eight of those. They have conceded five more shots on target that Villa have done this season and they have conceded a headed goal in each of their four games this season. The problems that Villa defender Philippe Senderos caused Liverpool, then the Arsenal goal could again be under threat. It’s been three games without a win now for Arsene Wenger’s men. Can they turn the tide?

Aston Villa v Arsenal Betting Odds

Arsenal 17/20, Draw 5/2, Aston Villa 4/1

Aston Villa v Arsenal Predictions

A great match for Villa to test themselves in. Arsenal aren’t looking fluid and the home side will fancy their chances of getting at least a point on the board. They are the more confident of the two sides, and there could be some value in backing Villa to avoid defeat in a Villa – Draw Double Chance.

The PGA Tour season winds to a dramatic close with the Tour Championship. The top thirty left in the FedEx Cup are duking out to claim what is golf’s richest prize. Every player in the thirty has a chance of lifting the Tour Championship title, as well as winning the FedEx Cup, but naturally some holder a stronger hand.

Rory McIlroy is a 5/1 shot to land the Tour Championship and he has a reasonable shot of winning the FedEx Cup with a second place finish, guaranteed to win it, if he wins Tour Championship. McIlroy, along with Chris Kirk, Billy Horschel, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan are the only ones in the field with their destinies completely in their own hands, should they win the Tour Championship.

The rest of the field will need to win and have other scenarios fall into place to capture both of the rich prizes. Chris Kirk made the most of the start at East Lake, carding a -4 in the first round, matched in top spot by Billy Horschel to put themselves in prime position to go on and lift the FedEx Cup as well. Watson is in the mix with -3 under, while McIlroy will have some work to to do after posting a round of -1 under.

There is so much at stake in this end of season action, that you can stay glued to it with live in-play betting at online bookmaker Stan James. The bookie is offering a great free bet promotion for the tournament as well. Place a bet through a mobile or tablet device with them, at a minimum of £20 (or £10 each way) on the Tour Championship in-play outright market, and they will give you a free £5 in-play bet to enjoy!
